2021 Release of UCCE Positions

UC ANR is thrilled to announce the significant number of new UC Cooperative Extension (UCCE) Advisor and CE Specialist positions released for recruitment. Rebuilding the CE footprint, to address California's emerging and future needs, is made possible by the historic 2021-22 state budget increase.

 

UCCE Positions Released in Rounds

Vice President Humiston has announced the following 28 UC Cooperative Extension positions were released for recruitment in three rounds. Program Council identified the highest priority UCCE Advisor and UCCE Specialist positions from the list of recent departures/priorities and the remaining positions from the 2018 position call process that were reconfirmed/ updated in 2019 as critically urgent. For positions with numbers, a full description of each position is available with the corresponding position number on the 2018 call for positions web page, with some modifications. The positions with no numbers were identified as current, high-priority needs through discussions with UC ANR leadership groups, including County Directors, Statewide Program/Institute Directors, and REC Directors. Program Teams also provided input on priorities.
